What About African Dykes Tho?!

Yvonne Onakeme Etaghene

In conversations about gay tingz, apparently all the gays are men and all the women are straight. WHAT ABOUT AFRICAN DYKES THO?! In recent news, Philip Schofield, British ITV new presenter, came out as gay, after 27 years of marriage to a woman with whom he has 2 daughters. From this surprising news came a lot of conversation, a lot of homophobic comments and a lot of questions--like: can we talk about homosexuality in ways that do not revolve around DL (down low) men or on the impact closeted gay men have on on straight women? Can we expand/deepen, and in fact focus our conversations around queerness on queer people? Why are queer women always left by the wayside, forgotten, dismissed from these conversations?
